Looking good is good business

To avoid being an oddball or being escorted away from events, ensure to adhere to the dress code at all times. If there is no dress code, try your best to look good in a way that is considered acceptable for the event you are attending.

Always have money at hand

Bills will always come up in Lagos. You cannot avoid it no matter how hard you try to. Hence, always have a budget for every outing, whether you think you will spend or not. It will save you from a lot of unforeseen circumstances that you should expect in Lagos.

Never move alone

The Weekender will advise you to always party with a group of friends or an acquaintance for two reasons. Firstly, it is always more fun when you are at a party with your friends that you can be silly with and people that match your vibes. Two is a crowd, and three is a party. Secondly, it is safer to move as a group.


Don’t turn up to any party without having a meal. This is a tested and trusted advice. There might be eventualities that may occur, and you are not able to eat at the party but who wants to party on an empty stomach? Wherever it is that you are going in Lagos, try your best to eat before you get there.

Sort out your transportation

Are you carpooling, using public transport, calling an uber or driving to the venue? Always have a clear plan on how you intend to commute and never assume. The truth is that anything can happen when you are outside in Lagos, and you never want to be stranded, as that is the worst possible way to end your night. 

Have a change of clothes(If possible)

You never know how your night will end in Lagos, especially when you’re out with outsiders. You can plan to visit the beach but will find yourself at a club or a movie theatre before the end of the night. Hence, you should always pack enough clothes when going out. As a Weekender intent on enjoying Lagos, overpacking is not a thing.
